Continue to hold the button until you have filled your cup with 25g of coffee. Note: you may find it best to let go just before you reach 25g as the coffee will continue to pour though for a moment.

Voila! Your machine has now been reprogrammed and will now pour 25g of coffee the next time you use the ‘espresso’ or ‘short’ button.
